GESEA Practical Training Course  

Course Description and Objectives

 

To ensure patient’s safety in laparoscopic surgery, it is clear that future laparoscopic surgeons should possess objective measurable theoretical knowledge and practical skills, prior to undertaking any procedure, even under supervision, in the OR.

 

As part of its plan to standardize strategies and regulations for training in laparoscopy throughout Europe, the European Academy of Gynaecological Surgery (EAGS) in collaboration with ESGE and EBCOG has conducted extensive scientific research resulting in a validated programme of exercises for acquiring and testing laparoscopic psychomotor skills.

 

LASTTtm is a validated assessment and certification method which measures and evaluates psychomotor skills in camera navigation, hand-eye and bi-manual coordination.

All exercises are executed in dry-lab set-up, with participants working together in pairs, and under the strict procedural guidance of instructors.

The course is open to all delegates interested in laparoscopic surgery, experience level is indifferent.

At the conclusion of the course the clinician will

  • be assessed on his/her psychomotor skills level
  • be ranked by comparison with benchmark performance data of representative experienced laparoscopic surgeons receiving a red, green or yellow colour code at each test.
  • receive a final report of competence in laparoscopic
  • Will have received extensive information off all modalities of the GESEA programme

Course Programme

 Laparoscopic Psychomotor skill Assessment

 Participants are invited to test the basic laparoscopic skills through the LASTT method developed by +he Academy. For the first time a scientific validated method has been defined where, independent of the medical skills, the required psychomotor skills for Laparoscopy are being assessed. Participants will go through an assessment of three exercises, performed in a pelvic trainer box and using the appropriate endoscopic equipment and instruments.

The individual scoring data will be introduced by an Academy associate into the on-line Academy Scoring Platform and the individual reports will be printed on location. The reports are part of the final reporting package but will also be available for each individual participant.
